WeightMedica adopts innovative weight loss procedures to help struggling bodies achieve their desired lean, mean, and/or angular shapes. The weight loss assessment option kicks off the calorie-kicking with an initial consult and medical assessment (a $100 value), an analytical physical/EKG/blood work order (a $270 value), and a Lunar iDXA body composition scan (a $280 value). All patients will then hop on the metaphoric treadmill of a two-week, medically supervised weight loss program that includes a half-hour nutrition consultation and a body composition analysis on the Tanita scale (a $116 vaule). The entire pudge-pulverizing process is aided by LipoFast (a $40 value), two injections that burn fat with vitamin B12, naturally occurring amino acids, and carrot torpedoes. Alternately, the body composition session scans seekers of slim with the Lunar iDXA scanner, compiling a detailed report that outlines the location of their body fat and provides a specific BMI reading (a $250 value when not purchased as part of a package).
Dr. Fausto Petruzziello and Nikit Shah, PAC, couldn’t ignore their patients’ expanding waistlines any longer. While practicing medicine at CareMedica, they realized that optimal health relied heavily on whether or not a person weighed in at a healthy number. So, together they founded WeightMedica in 2007, a branch of their original practice. They oversee weight-loss programs that begin with a physical to ensure a patient’s candidacy, checking their blood, charting an EKG, and handing out carnival prizes to those whose weight was guessed incorrectly. Then, patients meet regularly with the staff to record their progress, receive nutritional tips, and—in some cases—receive Lipofast injections, which expedite fat loss.
